On July 15th Maxwell Alexander Gallery will celebrate their Grand Re-Opening with Bay Area artist, Jeremy Mann’s solo exhibition, “Theater of light.” Originally in Culver City, Maxwell Alexander Gallery has found a new home in an updated 5,000 square foot warehouse in the Downtown LA Arts District. On joining into the rich history of the community, gallery owner Beau Alexander says, “We are excited to expand our space and establish a long-term legacy in such an influential part of LA. This move’s impact will be significant for the under appreciated American Realism movement happening on the West Coast.”
Jeremy Mann’s solo show will be featured at the Grand-Re-Opening, showcasing all-new work. In a unique move, Mann’s work will be shown alongside installations of the sets and garments he was inspired from. The outfits are created in collaboration by clothing and set-designer Christina Molcillo. Influenced by the delicate decadence of the 1920’s and Florenz Ziegfeld, live models will showcase the garments, (which will also be available for purchase), while surrounded by the sets that Mann’s current works depict. The play of time and perception come together for Mann’s work, with light and form evoking memory into the paintings.
Mann states, “The timeless feeling is always something I prefer in my paintings… something dreamlike and lost, or a thing once wonderful and now forgotten.“ Mann will also feature a group of his sought after abstract cityscapes. Guests are encouraged to dress in-theme or in their finest, to interact with the installation. This large-scale immersive experience will allow visitors an insight into not only Mann’s artistic process, but also into the world that he pulls from.
